The Surgeon 500 gloves are designed for only the top players of the game.
We, here at Lacrosse Scoop, want to bring you a first hand review on which lacrosse gloves the greats are using these days.
STX Surgeon 500 Gloves: Appearance 8/10
The Surgeon 500 gloves are easily the most stylish on the market right now.
In fact, they give off a “sleek and sophisticated” kind of vibe. We think that this glove will make it to the top teams in the NCAA. Audiences already see Will Manny of the Boston Cannons rocking them, and we expect there to be many more as well.
We really like the modern style that the gloves have and the thumb movement that allows for a more natural feel when wearing the gloves.
STX Surgeon 500 Gloves: Comfort 10/10
The STX Surgeon 500 glove is easily one of the more comfortable pairs on the market. The only way to describe it is wearing a cloud on your hands. It honestly feels that comfortable.
The downside is they break in pretty slowly and you can really tell. These gloves are as high class as the Stallion HD gloves and they are made of the same material essentially.
The material on the palm really allows for a flexible and soft feel. The thumb that allows for more flexibility is one of the best features of the entire STX surgeon 500 glove.
STX Surgeon 500 Gloves: Protection 9.5/10
We believe that the gloves really do allow for a greater protection than most gloves do. One thing that seems to trick careless players is infact the thumb.
Although the Iso Technology is a great feature, sometimes it lacks protection and players end up breaking that metacarpal bone right there. There really is not much anyone can do about that, but that is why we knocked off the .5.
The cuff/wrist area is a bit uncomfortable for us, but it also adds protection and style at the same time so nobody can really subtract any points for that.
STX Surgeon 500 Gloves: Durability 8/10
The STX Surgeon 500 is a durable glove. The only reason we knock off the 2 is because of the suede palm. Occasionally the palm goes back and forth from slippery to rough.
The suede really is not a great material to use on the palm. The best solution when it gets slippery and shiny is to rub it in some dirt on the field. This rare occurance is really a big problem for players and that is why we knocked off a whole 2 instead of 1.
Otherwise, the STX Surgeon 500 glove itself is quite durable and can last up to two seasons without any holes or anything.
STX Surgeon 500 Gloves: Grip 9/10
Like we mentioned before, the STX Surgeon 500 gloves seem to have that problem with the suede that is really a struggle for most players. Other than that, you cannot feel the seams in the glove, and that really allows for a better grip and natural feel.
STX Surgeon 500 Gloves: Price 9/10
While the gloves sit at a little less than perfect, they are priced as if they are perfect. The Stallion 500 gloves are one of the most expensive gloves on the market.
Yes, they are comfy and yes, they are stylish but this price is a little high for the gloves that come out of them.
